One of the most popular web browsers users love is Google Chrome, yet in spite of all the feature updates and bug fixes, Chrome can be slow at times because of some of its features, extensions or applications. So try to disable Extensions.
Chrome has been acting up for me lately, as well. I have used it ever since it launched, and in my book it is the best browser by far. I'm not going to put up with its tantrums indefinitely, however, and will try others if I can't fix the problem.
My issue is 'Network error' messages, that are a fairly common cause of complaint. I have tried all the usual fixes, but so far nothing has been successful.
Like you all, used Chrome for years and before that Opera, over the last week chrome browser has become unusable, eg when having 6 or more tabs open and I go back into my first tab, it becomes unresponsive with a window opening saying wait or kill page, even resetting it and adding extensions one at a time didn't work and setting a new wallpaper, the browser would just disappear back to the desktop, Have sent a report to Chrome, because I can't believe its only happening to a handful of people, I had thought it was a corrupt profile but then saw this posting. Hopefully they will rectify the bug in this latest version.
In the meantime, have gone back to Opera, imported all my bookmarks etc etc, no problems, well done Opera!
